About Me

*** PLEASE MAKE REQUESTS THROUGH BEWELCOME.ORG *** I do not agree with the B corporation status of Couchsurfing since August 2012.

Casting off the old Dublin lifestyle like a worn out vest and seeking pastures new. Where better to start than Berlin where the streets are paved with inspiration. Sport, socialising, reading and finding new adventures are my current objectives. And maybe even a job when the winter comes;-)


Do one thing every day that scares you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Involved in bikesurfberlin (see weblink on my profile)- sharing bikes for all CSers in Berlin! - fantastic
First CS event attended ever in oct 2011. Loved the atmosphere. Better late than never. Hoping to attend many more in the future. 110% all the way.


Ever growing...

CS events: Acrobatics, Board Games Nights, Swing lessons, Vegetarian meetups, Bike tours, etc. - a normal day in the life of a CSer ;-)

CS inspired project:> very heavily involved in this project which allows CSers to enjoy the Berlin I adore ie by bike


Aikido, bikram yoga, football, cycling, rock climbing, swimming, circus, reading, cooking, acrobatics, board games, swing dancing (despite being the mortal enemy of rhythm), film, socialising, laughing merrily
